2-6-2017 – Eastvale – The Eastvale STEM Academy Groundbreaking Ceremony took place Friday, February 3rd at 10 a.m. at Eleanor Roosevelt High School.
The Eastvale STEM Academy at Eleanor Roosevelt High School is committed to providing students with the same rigorous curriculum in a dynamic, innovative learning environment as offered at the main ERHS campus.
“…This is more than just a facility, it is more than just a building with laboratories, classrooms and social spaces,” said Dr. Kim Lawe, Director of the Eastvale STEM Academy, “This will be a place where learning can happen everywhere. Both inside and outside of the classroom.”
The Eastvale STEM Academy is built on three founding principles: Access, Collaboration, and Partnership. We believe all students should have access to a rigorous curriculum, whether on the main campus or at the STEM Academy. Collaboration is encouraged at all levels: students to students, staff to staff, school and district to industries and educational institutions. We also focus on preparing our students to be college and career ready in the STEM fields upon graduation through partnerships.
“So when I think of George Washington Carvers quote, ‘When you can do the common things of life in an uncommon way you will command the attention of the world,’ there is no doubt that the Eastvale STEM Academy at Eleanor Roosevelt High School will command the attention of the world,” said Jeremy Goins, Eleanor Roosevelt High School Principal.
When enrolled in the STEM program, students can expect a learning experience that takes the processes of critical thinking, problem solving, innovation, and collaboration and integrates it into the curriculum of real-world science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
“I look forward to our future, together we can make a major, major difference,” said Dr. Lin, CNUSD Superintendent.
The Eastvale STEM Academy will feature:
- Specialized Design and Engineering Labs including, robotics 3D printing, and manufacturing
- Specialized Health Science and Medical Labs
- Student Resource Center and Research Lounge
- Staff Professional Learning Center
- Flexible classrooms with integrated technology, visual and physical connectivity with each other
